I used Western Union to wire 4000 dollars to my family back in the Middle East. I paid 78 dollars in transfer fees and 116 dollars in currency exchange fees. Let that sink in

I also choose the cash option if I were to go with a debit card the fee was going to be 320 dollars

Do you see the money being made? Does it make sense now why they try to fight a public ledger that anybody can view and use?

Borderless currency without those greedy entities telling us what to do

I’m butthurt

Aside from 'i believe in the technology' I think most of us are here for the money.

To me it's a little difficult to understand why holding altcoins. I had them, but yesterday moved everything to btc and I think I'll leave it all there
